Vitamin C is known for its immunity-boosting properties, and our IV therapy can help to improve your body’s ability to fight off infection.

The Effects of Vitamin C Deficiency

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that plays a role in many important functions in the body. Unfortunately, vitamin C deficiency is common, particularly among people who don’t eat a balanced diet or consume enough fruits and vegetables. Symptoms of vitamin C deficiency include:
  • Weakness
  • Improving joint health
  • Muscle aches and pains
  • Joint pain
  • Dry and splitting hair
  • Brittle nails
  • Dry, rough and scaly skin
  • Easy bruising and bleeding
  • Slow wound healing
  • Frequent infections

If you’re deficient in vitamin C, you may also be at risk for more serious health conditions such as scurvy, a condition caused by a severe deficiency of vitamin C that can lead to bleeding gums, joint pain and skin haemorrhages. 

Fortunately, vitamin C deficiency is easily treated with supplements or by increasing your intake of foods rich in this nutrient. However, for some people with more severe deficiencies, intravenous (IV) therapy may be necessary.

IV therapy is a treatment method in which vitamins, minerals and other nutrients are delivered directly into your bloodstream. This allows your body to absorb high concentrations of the nutrient, which can be beneficial if you’re struggling to get enough through diet alone.

The Importance of Maintaining Healthy Vitamin C Levels

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can help protect your body against damage from free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can contribute to the development of chronic diseases like cancer. 

Antioxidants like high dose vitamin C neutralise free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent the kind of cellular damage they cause. That’s why vitamin C is sometimes referred to as an “anti-aging” nutrient.

In addition to its antioxidant effects, vitamin C may also boost immunity. It’s involved in the production of white blood cells, which are key players in the immune system. What’s more, vitamin C has been shown to enhance the function of other immune cells. It may also help shorten the duration of colds. 

Vitamin C is available in many foods, including citrus fruits, tomatoes, potatoes, leafy greens and red and yellow bell peppers. You can also get it from dietary supplements. The recommended dietary allowance for vitamin C increases with age. Adults aged 19-70 need at least 75 mg per day. Smokers need an additional 35 mg per day.

Most people can get the vitamin C they need by eating a varied and balanced diet. However, some groups of people may benefit from supplements or intravenous treatment. This includes individuals who don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables, smokers and people with certain medical conditions.

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water soluble vitamin that is not stored in the body, so it needs to be replenished daily. When taken orally, vitamin C is absorbed into the bloodstream and used by the body for various functions. However, when taken intravenously (IV), vitamin C bypasses the digestive system and is directly delivered to the cells, resulting in higher concentrations of the vitamin in the body. 

At Fresh Treatments, our intravenous vitamin C therapy uses a blend of vitamins and minerals to help improve overall health and wellbeing. The IV drip is slowly administered over the course of 30-60 minutes, allowing the body to slowly absorb the nutrients.
